The good news: Florence, (Cancer Warrior) one of the coolest girls in the breast cancer blogging house has asked me to co-author a book with her. For those of you who don’t know her, she has just finished writing “100 Perks of Having Cancer”. She was interviewed on CBC about reaching her milestone. The book we are working on is entitled “100 Perks of Having Cancer (plus 100 Health Tips for Surviving It)” (I’m writing the health tip part)
There seems to be an interest in this idea because the publishers are all over us…offering money, caviar, limos, Matthew McConaughey look- alikes….with their shirts off, mind you!
We are very excited about this book, but more importantly (and really the reason we both started our blogs) is that we are excited to be able to offer to cancer patients and survivors, something upbeat, fun, and useful in the vast, confusing, mosh-pit labeled “cancer survivor resources”. Stay tuned for specific release dates.
The bad news: Because the book will eat up most of my free time, I will not be blogging as often as I usually do. I also will not be commenting as much, so, no, I am not ignoring you. (For those of you who just subscribe to be nice and hate all my blog posts clogging up their mailboxes, this may be considered good news.)
I feel compelled to tell a “good news, bad news joke” to wrap this post up:
A guy has surgery to get one of his legs amputated, and as he wakes up, the doctor says “I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is…we took off the wrong leg.”
“Oh my God!” Says the patient, “What’s the good news?!”
The doctor says, “Your other leg is going to be OK!”
These are the jokes, folks.
